I am a thirty something, working mom of 2 awesome boys, and married for 11 years now. My boys are 5 and 7 years old, and suprise me everyday with the things they do and say. This blog is about my daily struggle to balance life and the funny things that happen...

Summer Vacation

I soooo need a break - left one job where I had not used any of my time off and started a new one where I have not accrued any time off - and my vacation I already have planned will use all my time for the remainder of the year.

I love my job - I’m just used to taking long weekends and going to the beach in the summer and I haven’t been once…a little part of me is dying.

BUT I’m going on vacation to the BEACH for a WEEK with my very best friend DEFINITELYJENNIFER so I think that’s going to override all of that.

And it’s the last week of summer for us before school starts, so it seems so far, but it’s actually not making the summer go by at a warp speed. Day dreaming away here….

My family - of the many pictures taken, Nate had an obnoxious face in each…this was the closest to a smile.

I ate ice cream alone in my car for lunch today…it was beautiful and I just felt like it.  It was also my one month mark at the new job and we got a compliment on a new change I implemented.  

An actual unsolicited “love it” response…still fires scattered but things are starting to get better and fall in place.  That’s been our first positive feedback….it was a good day.
